A knight was expected to have not only the strength and skills to face combat
in the violent Middle Ages but was also expected to temper this aggressive
side of a knight with a chivalrous side to his nature. These sacred oaths of
combat were combined with the ideals of chivalry and with strict rules of
etiquette and conduct. When heading into battle most Knights adorned their
armor and were equipped with a lance and sword. The arming sword or knightly
sword is the single handed cruciform sword of the High Middle Ages, in common
use between ca. 1000 and 1350, possibly remaining in rare use into the 16th
century. This Knightly sword is made from carbon steel with a straight
cruciform cross-guard and circular pommel. The grip is wood that has been
smoothed and stained with a spiral design. A fuller runs down the middle
almost the entire length of the blade. This sword is full tang and battle
ready with a peened pommel. Peening is the method historically used for most
of the pre-industrial era. It fixes the pommel permanently to the tang. This
durable blade is strong and ready for re-enactments or tournaments. Included
is a wooden scabbard with a rexin wrap and steel locket and chape. Finish off
